Today’s card is made with the Trimming The Tree stamp set.  Plus there is a special promotion going on that has matching Dies for a variety of stamp sets from the Annual and Mini Catalog.  And Yes, there are matching Dies for the Trimming The Tree set.  Woohoo!! I will share the card first and then add the information regarding the limited Dies.

Stamp Set

The Trimming The Tree stamp set has a variety of sentiments to go along with a 2 step stamped tree.  The bold tree can be used alone or with the second stamp, which adds more definition to the center.  My tree used both stamps with a mix of Shaded Spruce for the outside and Granny Apple Green for the inside definition.  Included with the set is the sweet sentiment.  There are also decorations, and a bow that I chose to place on the inside with that sentiment.


The Dies for this set are available thru the end of September.  So time is almost up on this special deal.  And these dies are definitely worth the extra order.  They give detail to the tree, have two different detailed tree stands, and a variety of decorations for the tree.  My card used the tree stand and star cut from the Gold & Rose Gold Specialty Paper.  It is a gold with beautiful details in it.


My color choices came from this piece of the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper.  It reminds me of a painting. The pops of Poppy Parade in the piece sold me immediately.    So it was added as the layer, but also to ground the sentiment.  There are a variety of greens in this piece of paper, but I went with Old Olive for the card base.  The softness helps that Poppy Parade to pop a bit more!
